    Hi Guys,

    Anyway, i tryed my boot this morning with out unlocking the doors and it open but activating the alarm..I then deactivated the alarm, locked the car again and tryed the boot again same thing happened boot opens off goes the alarm..

    I havent tryed manally locking the boot with the key as of yet (ok manually locking works fine), but any idea why the central locking is not picking up the boot?...Also, it seems the boot light has stopped working is this all linked?

    Thanks in advance

    Jason

    It sounds like the wires are knackered in the rubber sleeve that runs from the body to the bootlid.
    Over time, the rubber sheathing on the wiring deteriorates, cracks open then starts shorting things out

    I have just replaced mine and it sorted out about 4 electrical problems.

    It's covered more in this thread:1995 E36 325i boot wiring problems! with a link to a pelican parts guide
